Irmo, South Carolina


Irmo is a town in Lexington and Richland counties, South CarolinaUnited States and a relatively affluent suburb of Columbia. It is part of the ColumbiaMetropolitan Statistical Area and is located 12 miles (19 km) northwest of the city center. The population of Irmo was 11,097 at the 2010 census

Irmo is home to the annual Okra Strut,[6] a festival and parade. The festival was spawned in 1973 when the Lake Murray-Irmo Womens Club were trying to find a way to raise money for a new Irmo Public Library. Gene McKay, a news anchor and radio personality for WIS, the NBC affiliate in Columbia, came up with the idea to have a festival based on okra. It started out as a modest arts and crafts sale held in Seven Oaks Park, during which the women also sold okra. By 1978, it had grown into a full-fledged festival with rides, food, and dancing, and even pets/farm animals. By 1980, proceeds from the Okra Strut had gained enough money to pay for the Irmo Town Library. Attendance for the 2010 festival was said to be in excess of 50,000. The 2011 Irmo Okra Strut Festival was held at the Irmo Village shopping center on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, 24, 2011
